Janavi India x Marites Allen Luxe Collaboration

Some people might say that in life, you should only surround yourself with beautiful objects, love, and all things that gives you happiness in order to attract more positive energy to your life.

For most women, shopping for things that we love gives us an unexplainable amount of happiness. We do it with style and right strategy, and for that we treasured most of our purchases.

I’m also a huge fan of shopping for items that could last for longer time. Something that doesn’t fade in fashion, no matter how fast the changing seasons are.

Recently, my friend suggested that I should add a cashmere shawl in my closet. Cashmere is one of the most expensive fabric, and as a woman with taste, my friend told me I should have it.



But why is it that cashmere make it so expensive?


If you’ve ever been shopping and picked up a scarf only to immediately feel like you’re holding the softest puppy on the planet, then you know what cashmere feels like. Cashmere feels and looks amazing, but it also costs a TON. And it’s expensive because of the way cashmere is made.

Cashmere is not the same as wool. Whereas wool comes from sheep, cashmere comes from a specific type of goat. Yeah, we were surprised too! And these goats grow amazingly soft hair, but they don’t grow that much of it.

A single cashmere sweater requires the hair of about four cashmere goats.

The soft fibers come not from those long hairs that you see on the goat, but from a very soft undercoat. Cashmere’s softness comes from the fact that its fibers are very fine. The price of the fabric also comes in the fact that it is processed and weaved manually, and take weeks before it finished a single piece of clothing.

And no wonder, the fact that the fabric is so expensive and the huge demand of it, is still at its peak.

So when we were invited to an exclusive launch of this bespoke collaboration of the true creative brands, we are very much looking forward to view its finest collection.

Your belle, and Jyotika Jhalani of Janavi India

Janavi India is the brainchild and creative expression of Jyotika Jhalani, who began the brand in 1998 from her home. Coming from Kashmir, growing up draped in the warmest pashminas and always being in a creative environment- the valley had so much beauty. Jyotika wanted to celebrate her Kashmiri heritage and imbue it with a sense of drama and cinematic language that has always marked her aesthetic.

Janavi India are now available in about 200 stores worldwide, like Bergdorf Goodman and Harvey Nichols. The brand proud to be made in India and an ideal piece for heirloom is now called Janavi India, so there is a slightly greater emphasis on ‘made in India’. It’s done in a way so that people can have them as heirlooms. We are really excited about being in Calcutta.
